Best Films of 2011

Best Films of 2011

If there were ever a year to be wimpy and declare a tie, this would have been it: choosing between my Number 1 and Number 2 films was just silly. One is big, the other smaller; both are ambitious and perfectly made, but in wildly different ways. I adore them both.

Here’s what else you will and won’t find on my Top Ten. Many of the films were released earlier in the year, which means plenty of the year-end awards-bait movies were less impressive than their hype and their pedigrees suggested. (Meryl Streep is  better than Iron Lady.)

And it’s not an oversight that The Artist and War Horse are missing. As I said in my Indiewire conversation with Leonard Maltin and Eric Kohn, I think The Artist is charming but in the end a well-made stunt. And War Horse? I still can’t believe that a director as inventive as Spielberg has handed us such a huge cliche.

Most important, there’s no right or wrong about Top Tens, just opinions, so please share yours.

Take Shelter and Midnight in Paris are the only decent movies on this list.

These are absolutely terrific choices. I absolutely agree with you. Crazy Stupid Love was incredible. As were all of them.

Sideways was ten times better.

You are wrong about placing The Descendants as number one, simply wrong; it is cheesy, overdone, and overrated.
